A.H.S. Eliminated In Debate Friday Neither of Three Teams In Triangle with Albemarle Won Affirmative. In the annual triangular debate sponsored by the University of North Carolina, Albemarle’s nega tive team, composed of Mary Kath erine East and Howard Carter, de feated Thomasville; and the af firmative team, composed of Bur ton Hultz and Lee Copple, lost to Kannapolis. The query for discussion this year is: Resolved, that the United States should establish an alliance with Great Britain. Since all three negative teams in the triangle won, the triangle will not be represented at Chapel Hill this year, as it is necessary for both teams of one school to win in order to go. This is the first time in the three years that A. H. S. has been a member of the debaters’ union that the school has not been repre sented in the Chapel Hill finals. Both the affirmative and the negative A. H. S. teams had a 2-1 In the debate held at A. H. S. between Kannapolis and Thomas ville, the latter won by a unan imous decision.
